Dare to Dance is the 1st in the 3-D club trilogy. Stories for the mature reader because you don't have to be twenty-five and a size five to deserve a happily every after!

Alexandra Reynolds usually looks forward to the reunion with her two best friends. They laughingly call their trio the 3-D club'deceived, discarded, divorced?and have enjoyed helping each other overcome fears and insecurities. But this year it's her turn to perform, and Riana and Suzette have signed her up to do a burlesque routine at a gentleman's club. They should know she doesn't do sexy well. Years as the fat kid in school left her with a physical complex she just can't shake. Her cheating ex husband certainly didn't help. Nor did bartender, Matt McCoy, whom she'd carried a torch for in college. He'd never responded to her feeble attempts to flirt, and she'd concluded he didn't find her sexy enough, but she can't seem to shake memories of him either. She stumbles down the stage twirling a feather boa and swirling with nerves, only to fall right into Matt's arms?literally. Will the evening become another brick in her ?Alex doesn't do sexy? wall, or can a simple dare help her triumph over her self-consciousness and her old crush all in one night?

Two Lips Reviews
Alexandra Reynolds normally loves her reunions with her best friends as each year one has to do something to overcome her personal fears. This year Alexandra is not as excited because it is her turn and her friends signed her up to perform a burlesque dance at a men’s club. Not wanting to let her friends down, but nervous all the same, Alexandra performs and is shocked to see a face from her past. Bartender Matt McCoy is her college crush who never seemed to respond to her come-ons. During her dance, Alex falls directly into Matt’s arms where she learns he has always wanted her to be.

Dare To Dance is a darling short story by Lainey Bancroft. Alex is courageous, even if she won’t admit it, and a wonderful woman. Life has not always been easy for her and she is determined not to let it get her down. Matt has spent years longing for Alex but he didn’t feel he was good enough for the beautiful woman. Now that he has her in his arms he is determined to claim the woman who got away. I loved his determination to reclaim Alex. I loved this story and it stayed in my mind long after the last page. I would love to know where the characters are today and how their relationship developed. An enjoyable read, Dare To Dance has its place on my keeper shelf! 5/5

Fallen Angels Reviews
Dare to Dance is a wonderful story by Lainey Bancroft is a fun story about friendship and finding that special someone. Alex’s two friends keep you on your toes till the end.
Suzette and Riana find a way to get Alex over her shyness and go for the dream that never happened. Dare to Dance is what true friendship is all about. Giving but asking for nothing in return is something that I have learned from this story. True friendship is hard to find and when you do treasure it forever. Ms Bancroft I will treasure this story for a long time. Thank you for a fantastic story and a fun read.
